He watches me whenever I try to speak in English




 

We use “See” where we get things on our way

I have an ice-cream which is quite tasty

 

 

 




Mistake No. 66

Come or Return?

We often say that

We have come from office or school. (Wrong)

The correct form should be

We have returned from office or school (right)

The basic different which lies between “come” and return”:-

We use the word “return” where we had already gone to a place and that we are returning from there.

 

While on the other hand, the word “come” is used when none such an action takes place.
For example, we can say

My friend will come to house on my birthday (correct)

Here, if we use the word “return” for them, then it is going to be wrong

Like

My friend will return to my house on birthday. (Wrong)

Hope, you have got the basic difference from the two words “come” and “return”

For example

She had ate the mango (wrong)

Or

She has went there  (Wrong)

Correct sentences will be
She has eaten the mango (correct)

She has gone there (Correct)

Tip to remember:-

We use the third form of verb with HELPING VERN SUCH AS HAS/HAVE/HAD
If there is any verb used with them, then it has to be the third form of verb

In the above case

    1. “Ate” is the “2nd” form of verb. You need to use “3rd” form of verb which is “EATEN”
    2. “Went” is the 2nd form of verb. You need to use “3rd” form of verb which is “GONE”

     

 

 

 




 

Mistake No. 70

 

HAS / HAVE OR HAD?

Many of you think that if in any sentence “HAS” “HAVE” or “HAD” is used then, it will be a “Present Perfect Tense.
It is not like that.
For example,
I have a ball (No perfect sentence, it is infact Present Indefinite Tense or Simple Present Tense )
Why?

Because, there is no MAIN VERB is used.  “HAVE” in the above sentence is just a helping verb

Other examples of Present Indefinite Tense or Simple Present Tense are as follows:-

He has a pen

You have a ball
They have bags

He has a pencil

 

 

 




 

Mistake No. 71

 

DID WENT OR DID GO?

You need to add the FIRST FORM OF VERB in sentences where “DID” is used
